Run time: 77 mins

Jean Dujardin showcases killer style in this relentlessly ridiculous thriller-comedy from French filmmaker Quentin Dupieux.


In a remote French mountain village, Georges impulsively spends a small fortune on a fringed Italian deerskin jacket he finds for sale online. Out of pocket having just left his wife, he pays for a hotel room with his wedding ring and poses as a filmmaker, hiring local barmaid and aspiring editor Denise to edit his movie. Videotaping himself in conversation with his jacket, alongside convincing others to hand over their outerwear, Georges becomes increasingly ruthless as he pursues his crazed dream to be the possessor of the only jacket in the world.


At a mere 77 minutes, it’s a blast from start to finish. Dujardin, widely lauded for his lead role in The Artist, is an absolute riot throughout but it’s Adèle Haenel as his unwitting accomplice who steals the show. As she watches Georges’ unhinged footage, she chooses only to see an emerging art movie, with the jacket symbolising the shell we put around ourselves to protect us from others. Like Deerskin itself, she too is caught between reality and fantasy.


A superb, surreal little gem. (Chris Coetsee)
